describedWacana 4The American Cancer Society has announced asweeping revision in the, cancer-detection tests. Thenew guidelines, intended only or people who have nosymptoms of cancer, or who arc not considered to heathigh risk, are designed to "deliver essentially the samehealth benefit as previous society recommendations atgreatly reduced cost, risk and inconvenience to thepatient," says Dr. Saul B. Gusberg, president of thesociety and gynecologist at Mount Sinai School of Medicine in New York.The Society, for example, no longer recommendsan annual chest X-ray and sputum test for cigarettesmokers and others who might incur lung cancer. Thusfar, these tests have not been shown to increase apatient's chances of surviving lung cancer, even thoughthey may detect the disease in its early stages. The"annual" Pap smear is changed to "at least once everythree years," after two initial negative tests a year apart,for all women between 20 to 65 years old and foryounger women who are sexually active. It usuallytakes many years to develop cervical cancer from pre-cancerous lesions. Thus, an annual test to detectabnormalities of the cervix is not necessary for mostwomen.Other new recommendations include: aproctosigmoidoscopic examination for colon-rectalcancer every there to five years for those over 50; abreast examination every three years for women under40; an annual mammogram for women over 50; asingle "baseline" mammogram for women between 35and 40 and as often as advised by a personal physicianfor those under 50.
